Bernardine, an indie singer/songwriter from Perth, has just released her new single and music video for single ‘Horizon’, which premiered on Auspop on May 5.
The indie pop musician made her debut in 2015 with the release of her self-titled album which received a lot of love from Tone Deaf, Happy Mag, ABC Radio National AND garnering airplay of her album over 50 radio stations across the country. At this time, the musician was described as the “love child of Sarah Blasko and Bernard Fanning'' (RTR FM, 2015), revelling in her initial folk sound. Since then, Bernardine’s sound has transformed and evolved with the times; her sound now takes elements of electronic pop and that shines through more and more as you follow the musical journey she’s had through the years. The Bernardine you know and love today is definitely comfortable with her unique sound that sets her apart; built upon “atmospheric vocals [cascading] over a sea of shimmering guitars and synths, set in motion by downtempo sunset rhythms”.
Fast forward to earlier this year, the talented singer released her single and accompanying music video for ‘22’. The single premiered on ‘Roots N All’ on Triple J following which, she received positive reviews from AAA Backstage, Auspop, Around the Sound and other industry bodies.
Her newest single ‘Horizon’ follows on from that, released as a product of her isolation in the US during the COVID-19 lockdown. Bernardine comments on the creative process saying, “the world suddenly stopped around me and I felt very isolated and far from home. Writing helped me get through this time and Horizon was the first song that came to me. At first glance Horizon comes across as a love song, but it is also intended to change the way you see yourself.” Since the single’s release, ‘Horizon’ has been getting a lot of attention through features on Spotify playkiists such as ‘Fresh Picks’ (WAM), ‘Discover Brand New’ (FBP Music Publishing) and ‘Feel The Pop’ (Chilly Nights) - each of which have over 6K likes! Not only that, but her song has also been played in various radio stations around the world, including the UK, US and right here in Australia too! Safe to say that Bernardine is steadily climbing up the charts and is a force to be reckoned with.
